2019 Rene Barbier Clos Mogodor Com Tu Montsant
In the early part of this century, my son René and I first started experimenting with wine-making in the village of La Figuera (70 unhabitants). We met a few winemakers and we vinified around 4.000 kilos of Garnacha vines, in the cooperative of El Molar. From the very beginning we realized its extraordinary potential. This first vinification was moved to Laurona cellar, whose owner was Mr. Christopher Cannan, and both he and I were shareholders of the cellar. From that moment onwards all the garnacha coming into the cellar was from La Figuera.
Following this adventure, in 2002 I discovered the centennial vineyard that belonged to Mr. Joan Anguera (today it’s the Spectacle vineyard). We set up a society, Espectacle Vins S.L., with Anguera, Cannan, Fernando Zamora and myself.
With the collaboration of my son René we started to promote that area so exceptionally good for Garnachas. Our relationship with the cooperative and its five members has always been very good. On one hand, the winemakers commit to selling a good selection of Garnacha grapes to provide for four new competing projects: The Cooperative (their project); wine Com Tu (our project); Venus La Figuera (René and Sara) and Pitágoras (Roland family).
The idea of the name Com Tu was my son’s, Anderson Barbier Meyer, an artist from top to bottom, he composes, writes, sings and is currently studying to be a producer of his own art. Together with his mother- a designer, painter, ex-ballerina- they came up with this label that describes a philosophy that only he can explain.
In 2014 we produced the first wine, only a few bottles that we kept for ageing. In 2015, some 3,000 bottles (sold in Switzerland and Barcelona). In 2016 we produced some 8,000 bottles, which we sold form September 2018. And in 2018 we bought the first vineyards in La Figuera; a 1.5 hectares Garnacha plot, planted in 1996, with a production of 4,000 kgs., which will allow us to raise the supply to 12,000 bottles for 2018.
And also my second son, Christian, joined us in this project. He is leading Clos Mogador into the path of biodynamic agriculture.
